Rivals targetting Manchester City players: Bernardo Silva
Bernardo Silva believes Manchester City are being unfairly targeted for some rough treatment by opponents
Bernardo Silva believes Manchester City are being unfairly targeted for some rough treatment by opponents. City players have been on the receiving end of a series of bad tackles over the past two months.
The controversy continued on Wednesday as Brahim Diaz was caught by a high, studs-up challenge by Matt Phillips late in City's 3-0 win over West Brom at the Etihad Stadium.
Asked if City were being targeted, Silva said: "Obviously. It's clear over the last few months — we've seen with Leroy. It was a terrible accident and now he's injured for two months — a very important player. (On Wednesday) it could have been Brahim and it could have been Kevin. I think, as the coach says, the referees have to do their job and if it's a red card they have to give it. They are not doing that over the last few months."
